Ladybug Pasta

Posted on: August 1, 2012

Bug pasta?  Not really, but it is ladybug colored.  The girls wanted a pasta lunch at home so I made some mini farfalle (bowtie) pasta.  I added quartered grape tomatoes, a can of black beans, about a 1/2 cup of sliced black olives, a dash of salt and a dab of Earth Balance Coconut Spread.  I tossed in some vegan parmesan, and it was ready to go!  Cute and zero leftovers.  It helps to tell them it’s bug pasta!  This was my dish.

And the dolled up version for the girls.  Pasta in the middle and hearts of heart shaped strawberries and Rainier cherries.

My husband’s sides today are packed in his Easy LunchBox.  He has mixed baby greens topped with green onions, cherry tomatoes, carrot & cucumber sticks.  At the top left are seedless red grapes and the top right are Rainier cherries.

Whenever people tell me they’re into the paleo diet I wonder why they usually don’t acknowledge that our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate bugs… that’s where my brain went with this. Olives and cherry tomatoes is a delicious combo. :)

Hah! I left the real bugs out ;)

Thank goodness!

This came in my FB feed at just the right time; I mentioned lady bug pasta and showed my five year old your daughter’s lunch and have convinced him not to have pb&j for one day! Thanks!

Yay! That’s great! We get sick of sandwiches too.

super love!! The lunches are all yummy :)
